It's The Summer of the Kayak
It is officially the summer of the kayak. This week Ashley Tisdale -- no idea what she is famous for -- was repeatedly photographed somewhat successfully attempting to take a kayak in Malibu, California. However, the kayak tipping point (no pun intended) was reached long before Ashley's Malibu adventure.
Why is there such a run on these unsinkable boats this summer? First, as we told you last month, kayaking is one of the few activities you can actually do for free in Manhattan, and no cost tends to make things trendy in NYC.
On the left coast, kayak tours come with a price. Pacific Coast Kayaking offers Malibu kayaking with a brunch for $45.00 -- how decadent. The trip is a noncommittal 10 AM - 2 PM, which makes it even more attractive to slacker travelers.
Want more kayaks-are-hot evidence? If you are watching Shark Week on the Discovery channel this week, and you should be, you may have noticed the clear kayak the host used in order to spot sharks while above water. Very cool.
